Abstract

In this presentation we will discuss the swash waves at Cabrillo Beach. We will compare and contrast the inner and outer beach. During our research, we will go to Cabrillo beach and measure how far the swash gets, if the slope of the land affects the swashes, and discover why either of the inner or outer beach has a bigger swash zone. We will use a transect tape to measure the distance of the swash waves, an inclinometer to measure the slope of the land, and flag stakes at every foot to help determine how far the waves get. At each beach we will have three different locations to gather swash waves at multiple areas. In order to get the most accurate data we will monitor the waves for ten minutes at every location. Then at the end we will find the mean of both beaches.

Research Question : Which beach has a bigger swash zone at Cabrillo beach? (Outer or Inner)

Hypothesis : The outer Cabrillo beach will have a bigger swash zone than the inner Cabrillo beach
